Understanding the stress-disease connection

TCM practitioners understand that the Mind /Body connection is hugely important in health and in sickness. This Dr feels that his training is letting down patients by not incorporating what we as TCM practitioners and other disciplines like Ayurvedic practitioners are taught from early on. He feels that it’s time for Western MD’s to start treating with the mind and body seen as two halves of one.Well worth watching.

The Vancouver-based Dr. Gabor Maté argues that too many doctors seem to have forgotten what was once a commonplace assumptionthat emotions are deeply implicated in both the development of illness and in the restoration of health. Based on medical studies and his own experience with chronically ill patients at the Palliative Care Unit at Vancouver Hospital, where he was the Medical Coordinator for seven years, Dr. Gabor Mate makes the case that there are important links between the mind and the immune system. He found that stress and individual emotional makeup play critical roles in an array of diseases.
